Can You Find Everyone in Toronto by Using an Online Directory?

Traditional phone directories and their online versions, such as Canada411.ca, only list people and businesses in Toronto with listed landline phone numbers, as of 2015. These directories do not list people without phones, with cellphones, or who have requested that their number not be listed.

Nevertheless, phone directories remain the most complete publicly accessible listing service. Some websites, such as PeopleSmart.com and PhoneLookup.com, claim to provide directories of many unlisted phone numbers, including many cellphone numbers, for a fee. Social media websites, such as Facebook.com and LinkedIn.com, may also list people not found in traditional phone directories. However, many people on social media websites do not make their contact information available to strangers.
